It was a pretty impressive scene at the Specter, Various & Gould opening at the Brooklynite Gallery on Saturday night. And yea, Saturday night. Why does everyone throw these parties on a Thursday evening, when you can do it on the weekend and make it a real night?
I must admit, being forced to ride an over-crowded local A train from Harlem to Utica Station doesn’t really put you in the best of moods. But, while approaching the gallery, I couldn’t help but get a little re-charged as the music got louder and more distinct. It was a cool scene to walk into a nearly empty storefront, surrounded in quality artwork, knowing that even more people were packed in and celebrating in back somewhere.
In this case it was a backyard decorated by the artists, with DJ’s spinning, Red Stripes flowing, and a performance from a musician like Jeff Kessel, a one man looping machine.
And it’s always cool running into the likes of Luna Park, Celso, Veng (RWK), Carlito Brigante, and the rest.
No doubt everyone enjoyed the art, the artists, the tunes and the event.
